FUCKLIST

I asked everyone I know if they kept a list of their sexual history, and if so, to please share it with me. A surprising number of women said yes and happily obliged. Men were unwilling: "It's too many to count." "If I had one I wouldn't show you." "Only crazy girls do that." 

FUCKLIST is a compilation of those seventy-five women. Meaningful to me during a time when women are feeling free to speak the fuck up after having quietly kept track. Maybe it's objectifying men, maybe it just makes us "crazy". Take what you want from it - not sorry if you're offended.
